From its humble beginnings in 2002 as a small birthday party for a few friends, Booty Bassment has grown to one of California's best dance parties. Veteran DJs Dimitri Dickinson and Ryan Poulsen have turned this night into a success with monthly installments in San Diego, San Francisco, and now, Portland with the dynamic team of Maxx Bass, Nathan Detroit and their very own twerk cheerleader Ms. Coco B.

For the second year running, RACC is proud to bring the whole PDX music scene together at Happening! 2015. Just like last year, we're inviting Portland's musicians, bookers, managers, music writers, label owners, and the various characters who make music happen in this town. Last time around, we made some connections, opened some doors, and learned some tricks. We're doing it again, and we'll have the same program that made the first one such a success:
* Experts leading small groups on topics like running a label, legal issues for artists, and booking shows
* Veterans hosting a discussion on the urgent issues we're all facing as Portland music people
* Maybe most importantly, sometime shoot the breeze with our old and new pals
Happening! 2015 will be an exploratory conversation about how music works around here, and how artists, professionals, and supporters shape the scene. We'll focus on the issues we all deal with - how do you get paid for the work you love when everything's changing? How do get good music out to the most people? But we'll have plenty of time to address everyone's individual questions, too.
So bring your stories, questions, and ideas. Once again, we'll bring snacks, beer, experts, and conversation. Let's work together to make music happen.
